Abstract:
    As screen-time in this era has increased. It is effecting pre-school and school children (4-10 years old) negatively. They are developing inattention, hyperactivity and aggression.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    The people and children are being negatively impacted by over-usage of screens. This needs to be catered by bringing a change in lifestyle.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   The children (4-10 years old). As they are the coming generations who will face the problems (health issues, behaviour problems and increase in sedentary behviour)
How will the solution works
    It will help in the reduction of screen-time. Inculcating S.T.E.A.M in a way that is not practiced in Pakistan. Designing a kit in the form of toys or otherwise that will help them stay engaged for a longer time span that will not encourage them to use screens for merely watching cartoons or entertainment but for a generative purpose (educational). It will be modular, interactive and playful.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    The toy industry. Pakistan does not have any of its own toys that are manufactured or specifically designed for the local need. They are imported. So my product will be consider local needs and be designed accordingly.
